Our Changing World - NZ Rocketry Challenge

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:30 pm on 26 November 2012

The Curiosity Rover and its successful landing on Mars have triggered a wave of enthusiasm for space exploration. The KiwiSpace Foundation hopes to capitalise on that with the inaugural New Zealand Rocketry Challenge, in which science students have to build their own rocket, capable of taking a raw egg up to 150 metres in the air and return it safely to Earth.
